Pakistan cricket team has arrived in India for their T20 World Cup match, the atmosphere is as usual buzzing. Many people on social media, especially on facebook, have started changing their profile pictures to show their support for Indian Cricket Team. India-Pakistan matches are too often synonymous with rivalry and sometimes even politically charged. Politics has too often disrupted the sporting ties and people to people ties. This time, however people have taken matters in their own hands, they are sending out a positive message, a message of mutual love and respect that transcends rivalry.

This gesture is sending a positive reverberation across the cricketing world and sending out a clear message of peace that will not be shaken by sporting rivalries and perhaps sets the tone for future relations between the two countries.

This gesture by the fans from both the countries comes in the backdrop of Shahid Afridi showering praise on Indian cricket fans for all the love and affection.

The democratically elected governments of both countries should take stock of the situation and ensure politics does not overreach into sports relations. Encouraging and strengthening people to people ties through sports and any other initiatives can be big step 1 for lasting peace among both countries

The Logical Indian lauds the Logical Indians and Pakistani’s over this gesture they have shown on social media. We encourage more such initiatives to take place that can improve relations between India and Pakistan. Lasting peace and strong relations could only benefit both the countries.
